Mark Davies Injured Riders’ Fund is delighted to announce World Number 1 showjumper, Scott Brash has joined them as a Vice President.
Coming just after Scott’s history making triumph in the Rolex Grand Slam at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, the charity is honoured to be associated with a rider of Scott’s calibre at the very top of the sport.
Scott clinched all three Major Grand Prix’s at Aachen, Spruce Meadows and Geneva riding the ever reliable Hello Sanctos, on whom he also won Team Gold at London 2012.
Administrator and Fund Coordinator Rosemary Lang said: “ we are all so thrilled to welcome Scott as a Vice President of The Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund. it is wonderful to have such a hugely talented and respected rider on board to help us promote the work we do to help those injured in horse related accidents”
Securing the support of Scott Brash highlights the message that safety is paramount however good a rider you are – even if you are World Number 1! In equestrian sports nobody is immune from serious injury.
In his role as Vice President Scott has already carried out his first official duty by judging the ‘Best Dressed’ during Ladies Day at Hickstead that was held in aid of the Mark Davies Injured Riders’ Fund.
